The streets of Paris



When I saw the image for this week's Art Creations Friday challenge, I admit I had no clue as to what to do with it. This saucy mademoiselle had me stumped.

After some consideration I decided I was going to remove her from her setting and plunk her down on the streets of Paris. Thanks to Leslie's generosity, I have some Parisian photographs and permission to alter them as I wish, so the hunt was on for a suitable street photograph. I narrowed it down, tried to use a couple with little success, then finally hit paydirt. A little texture, a little edging, and finally I called it done.

This one turned out to be quite a challenge for me but then, isn't that the point?
